Nikon Photo Contest 2020 - 2021 Judges

In these challenging times, we need creative and cultural opportunities to remind us of our humanity and resilience, both celebrating and observing the planet and our communities in new ways. The Nikon Photo Contest is one of the most respected and key opportunities to explore these new questions and possible ways of thinking, where imagination meets connection.

This will be the third time I have been asked to lead the jury for this year’s competition, and I am humbled and honoured to be given this new challenge and responsibility. For me, the three competitions are linked, as part of a major transformational period in which we are coming to see ourselves and our futures differently, where technology has enabled and enhanced different ways of working with images, and where access to the tools and publishing of photography and video is now more widespread than ever before in history with so many new voices adding to the mix of our cultural narratives.

The Nikon Photo Contest has evolved in these few years, dynamically embracing change and a greater and more direct connection with the human spirit. A younger generation are refreshing the ways we encounter our worlds, and an older generation are bringing new wisdoms and insights to this ever-evolving story.

Entering the contest will not only add to the richness of these narratives, but will provide an amazing window for your work. We are looking for fresh eyes, new vistas, and transformative perceptions. We are looking for your creative, dynamic, and personal views, and hope to provide a platform to help you share that excellence with the world, both professionally and publicly.
